Please print these leaflets and place them in your notice boards - or even better come along; it would be nice to see some new faces.

So here we have a new edition of the elusive RMT Platform.
Hoping to get an edition out each month so it is ready for Regional Council and Station & Revenue Grades meetings with specials when needed.

It was brought to my attention that not everyone’s a geek like me, and some don’t have a clue what a podcast is, where to get one, or how to make one. So for possibly the first time ever, I'm going to do a post that’s going to be a bit educational and maybe prompt someone to do a podcast for their own group or branch.
So let's look into my ways of keeping members informed (if they listen is another issue altogether).
Obviously you have the standard newsletter and sending out emails so I won't go into that.

I am thoroughly fed up with the GGC of this Union seemingly ignoring anything that we as members decide upon.
This time they have ignored our call for a boycott of the AFM machines and all the other suggestions we made at the meeting where the GGC insisted we were released to put our feelings forward as "recommendations to the GGC" time and time again it feels like were not only fighting management but some very odd decision making by the union beaurocrats. No wonder we are losing members hand over fist.

It's just been brought to my attention that during rtw interviews according to our gsm and a Dsm when we sign the form we do not sign for what the Dsm ticks ie sick sickness explained etc. I just want some clarification on this before I lose it with our waste of space management

Hope all goes well and we cripple them yet again.

Just a quick one to let you know of something kind of worrying that has started to happen.
The other day the Early turn SS didnt show up at Cannon St so the station was closed low and behold someone must of realised that its Hendys home station and quickly hunted around for someone to man the station. At approx 06:30 the early turn CSA was sent from East Ham to cover Cannon St.

Easthammer 6 is now out a totally different format because I was bored and decided to make it into a 4 page booklet when printed. I would still like input from other Reps in the Branch as I only know whats going on at my group. This is now an 8 page version although it may go back to four for other editions but I thought I would include a Centre fold poster (No not that kind)

On April 11th in association with the East Ham Branch a meeting is being held at the Barking Theater at 18:30. I urge all reps and Activists to come and show your support for this cause.
Bob Crow will be speaking on this issue at the meeting.
If you work on the East Ham Group itself then the idea of Nick Griffin getting voted in must send shivers down your spine. Imagine daily marches by neo nazi thugs harrassing both staff and passengers and the council itself approving them. This is what we have to look forward to if we dont make a stand.
